Tiwa blockade on NH 37 in Raha
Normal surface communication on the National Highway-37 remained heavily disrupted on Tuesday when the All Tiwa Students’ Union blocked it demanding inclusion of the Tiwa Autonomous areas in the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution.
This is apart from the demand to arrest of Council CEM Rama Kanta Deori. They alleged that Deori was involved in the recent attack of the two ATSU members.
Nearly one thousand people and ATSU activists blockaded the Highway at 11 in the morning shouting slogans against the Deori and the state government.
Senior Nagaon district administration officials including executive magistrate M.U. Ahmed rushed to the spot and brought the situation under control.
Later, the students’ body submitted a memorandum raising the demands addressed to Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi through the executive magistrate.
